City Leaders, Activists Look To Chief's Action On MPD MisconductOn Saturday, the Minneapolis Police Officers Federation issued a statement about two cases involving off-duty officers accused of racial bias. The Federation says it concurs with Chief Janee Harteau's statement that "racism and discrimination of any kind will not be tolerated within the MPD."
